VIDEO: Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo ticks off dunking on Tacko Fall on his bucket list with emphatic slam
Milwaukee Bucks superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo first revealed his desire to dunk over Tacko Fall back in 2019. Two years later, the Greek Freak finally got the opportunity and made sure to check that entry on his bucket list.
Mid-way into the second quarter of the Bucks’ hosting of the Boston Celtics at Fiserv Forum on Friday, the reigning NBA MVP performed one of his infamous long strides on his way to the paint. Seeing the 7-foot-5 giant as the last line of defense for Boston only got Giannis even more excited to hammer one down.
Fall did his best to keep up but had no chance of stopping Antetokounmpo once he reached the apex. The Greek Freak finally got his Fall poster, extending his team’s lead in the process.

Giannis Antetokounmpo’s fascination with dunking on someone taller and longer than him came to light in an ESPN report in 2019. The Bucks superstar was watching an NCAA game between then college players Tacko Fall and Zion Williamson when he expressed his wish to one day climb that towering mountain.
Fall has been around the league for some time now but hasn’t really gotten major minutes in coach Brad Stevens’ rotation, thus limiting Giannis’ chances of posterizing the big fella. The opportunity finally presented itself for Giannis, and he made sure to add Fall to his growing list of victims.
